INSTALATIONThe sensor is installed under the surface of the parking space, and is designed so that its installation can be handled by one person. The assembly requires a cordless impact drill with a SDS-Plus head set and SDS-Plus drill with a diameter of 40 mm and a working length of at least 180 mm. Sensor must be installed into a rigid material such as concrete. Installation into non rigid materials may allow sensor movement and cause malfunction. Next, we'll need a polyurethane sealant (e.g. MAPEI MAPEFLEX PU21 or similar) and sand with grain 0.3 mm to 1 mm with sharp edges. The whole installation does not take more than 10 minutes.
To assure the best detection, it is best to place the parking sensor into the center of the parking space (see Figure 1). Therefore, it is necessary to drill a hole with a diameter of 40 mm and a depth of 180 mm into the middle of the parking space in the first step (see Figure 2). Then, remove all dust and small stones inside the hole and confirm that the depth of the created opening is sufficient.

Figure 2: Dimensions of the opening for SMART parking sensor BMS1.2.
To set correct installation depth fill bottom of the mounting hole with sand. Top of a sensor must be between 2 mm to 5 mm below surface of a parking spot. It is imperative that the sensor is placed in the correct position (the arrow on the casing of the SMART sensor must face down).

Fill the rest of the hole with sand. Keep the SMART sensor in center of a hole.

Final step is to cover hole with sealant. Pour the sealant MAPEI polyurethane MAPEFLEX PU21 or similar over the top of sensor as shown in figure 5.
